Since I was supported I have also supported two HIV+ pregnant women in my village – I have shared with them what I was taught. Today if you visit these two women you will see that they have good health and their children were born HIV negative all because of the Pregnancy Twinning intervention.
My baby was born HIV negative. My husband and I did not know that this was possible, or that an HIV positive mother can breastfeed. This programme needs to continue so that it can reach other pregnant women in this village. Our elders are happy that we are visiting the hospital and that we are being visited here at home.
My husband was also given advice about preparing for delivery, he was able to support me through pregnancy which even benefitted my neighbours! Men in this village who do not support their pregnant wives so my husband was a good role model because of what he learnt.
